attacks in pakistan. a city has seen the worst of the violence and we have more. >> this is perhaps the most painful part of this community's protests. they are refusing to bury their loved ones who were killed in saturday's bombing until the army is called in to go after the groups responsible. now leaders of the community also have two other demands. they want to put an end to the killings of their community and they have also insisted that laws be passed to make it a crime to discriminate against shias in pakistan. this is perhaps another sign of the anguish and suffering that this community has faced over the past few years. more than 80 people were killed in saturday's attack, an attack which followed a similar attack just last month in which more than 90 people were killed. in all since the start of this year, more than 200 shias have been killed and these people here are demanding answers and action. >> striking iberian airlines against the airport. over the company's plans to cut thousands of jobs. we have reports from madrid. >> this was no normal day at the office. thousan

cities or places that are more neutral to it. it is certainly hard to prejudge the outcome of these talks. the foreign minister at a security conference in munich over the weekend was making positive noises about what could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is un
